The only thing better than playing video games is playing with friends. That’s why once a month the Media Library host open gaming events in the libraries for you and your best buds. Xbox 360s, PlayStation 3s, Nintendo Wiis and all of the games and accessories in our collection are available for you and your crew to compete in friendly gaming tournaments and test drive the latest titles from your favorite developers.
The Friends of the Library will sponsor a reception to celebrate the official re-opening of the Judge Sarah T. Hughes Reading Room, Willis Library, room 437. Visitors will see the newly renovated reading room and the Archives and Rare Books staff will offer tours of their vault and new processing space. Please stop by for a short program and reception.
“Nothing has been left out of here except a brief mention of the spawning habits of the lamprey eel and a recipe for fried grits.” – Don Gillis, The Unfinished Symphony Conductor (1967)
